Apartment in the Former Palace of the Duke of Anjou and the King of Sicily

Nestled in the iconic Saint-Gervais district, in the heart of the Marais in Paris, this rare and exceptional property offers a perfect blend of historical charm and contemporary luxury. For sale at €2,150,000, this apartment is located on the noble floor of a mansion that once belonged to illustrious figures such as the Duke of la Force, the Duke of Anjou, and the King of Sicily. Presented by Paris Marais Sotheby’s International Realty and featured by AD Magazine, this property represents a unique opportunity for lovers of history and luxury.

A Prestigious Historical Heritage

This 145 sq.m apartment is a true piece of history, bearing witness to the prestigious past of the mansion of the Duke of la Force, the former palace of the Duke of Anjou and the King of Sicily. As you step through its doors, you enter a world where every detail tells a story, where every molding and gilded sculpture evokes the splendor of a bygone era.

The ceilings, meticulously sculpted and sometimes hand-painted by the master craftsmen of the time, add a touch of grandeur and sophistication to this already impressive space. The entrance is crowned with a neo-classical dome, framed by Venetian mirrors and 18th-century consoles, immediately setting the tone for a sumptuous interior.

Sumptuous and Unique Features

The reception room, the true centerpiece of this apartment, is adorned with an elegant mezzanine featuring a green-painted balustrade, harmonizing beautifully with the original parquet and a majestic red marble fireplace dating from the 17th century. This same red marble can be found in the main bathroom, adorning a luxurious bathtub and accompanied by opulent details such as a sculpted and gilded lion’s head.

The independent kitchen, along with a second bedroom and Louis XVI-inspired columns, completes this space with a baroque atmosphere, marked by a pronounced taste for antiques and architectural treasures.

A Prestige Renovation

The entire apartment has been carefully restored by antique dealer and painter Vincent Roux. Thanks to his expertise, Vincent Roux has managed to breathe new life into this historic interior while preserving and enhancing its original features. The ceiling height, exceeding four meters, adds an extra dimension of grandeur and elegance, while the unobstructed views from this renovated apartment offer an impressive panorama of the Marais.

Bas-reliefs from the Château des Rochers, the residence of Madame de Sévigné, and the Musée Carnavalet enrich this interior, adding a touch of authenticity and prestige.
